Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
One hour at a time leads to one day at a time in our recovery program. Each hour is one of 24 building blocks of each day of our sobriety and clean time.
My current building block is to raise above fear and practice faith this hour.
Today, I understand that when I project my feelings outward and see them as belonging to other people and not to me, I postpone my own self-awareness. The only way I can deal with difficult feelings is first to claim them as my own. Sitting with anxiety, anger, rage and jealousy is not pleasant, but actually experiencing my own feelings is the only way to get through them.
I own my feelings and am willing to experience them.

‘Self-forgiveness brings your mental and emotional energy systems back into balance. That’s all. No big deal. It’s not necessarily religious or spiritual, it’s just good ol’ street sense – the missing link in intelligence that scientists are looking for. Once you practice forgiving and releasing yourself, you’ll realize the benefits soon in the way you feel overall.’

Ramana Marhrshi talks about life’s journey and likens it to a train trip. He says that you can carry your baggage on your head or set it on the floor beside you. Either way, both you and your baggage arrive at your destination. This is because the train carries your baggage, not you. If you prefer to carry your burdens on your head, it doesn’t change the destination, it simply gives you a head ache.
I chose to let my Higher Power carry my baggage and my burdens.
